These Quotes From Big Sam Will Have Tottenham Fans Jumping For Joy

7 Posted by - April 25, 2017 - News

Having pulled off yet another major upset by beating Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday, Sam Allardyce’s Crystal Palace now have the chance to decide the fate of the Premier League title at home to Spurs on Wednesday night.

These quotes from Big Sam will have Spurs fans jumping for joy ahead of their trip to Selhurst Park tomorrow night. 

After picking up a woeful four points from his first eight games in charge, Allardyce’s methods are now paying off in a big way; with the last eight Premier League games genererating six wins, one draw and one defeat. Indeed, after looking dead and buried in mid-February, Palace’s tally of 38 points will almost certainly be enough to secure the club’s top flight status for another year, giving the manager and his players every reason to head into Wednesday night’s tie with a spring in their step.

At the other end of the table, Spurs remain the only team within touching distance of Antonio Conte’s Chelsea, leaving Mauricio Pochettino and his players to cross their fingers and pray that Southampton (who have nothing left to play for whatsoever) can pull off a massive upset by pilfering all three points from under the Blues’ noses at Stamford Bridge this evening. If I was a betting man, I would suggest that there’s little to no chance of such a result occurring but if we’ve taught the world of football anything ourselves in recent weeks, it is to expect the unexpected.

Should Claude Puel’s players do the business on the Kings Road this evening, the eyes of the nation will shift intently to events in SE25 tomorrow night, keen to see if Big Sam can douse the flames of Tottenham’s title bid. Whilst our current form may well scare a sizeable chunk of the  travelling support, circumstances from our end appear to dictate that the visitors may be in for a rather easier ride than many of their compatriots have endured in recent weeks.

You can be certain that the Palace boss will have prepared the team in infinite detail for Spurs’ arrival but as I’m sure you’ll agree, the quotes he has given in the article attached above do offer some real hope for Tottenham.

    I think this is a mistake. The boys are on a roll against the big teams and after Spurs lost to Chelsea there is potential for them to ‘do a Spurs’ and drop out of title race. This is even more likely if Southampton do beat Chelsea and the pressure is on

    I understand that we have a better chance against Burnley, who are awful away, but i feel momentum is on our side and we are better at countering Spurs than breaking teams like Burnley –
    who will park the bus – down.

    However, it does give Jimmy, PVA, Ledley, Chungy, Campbell, Damo and Sako (Bakary) a chance to shine and if we are resting players i would like to some youngsters given a run out.

      It’s worth remembering that PVA, Sakho and Jimmy are all top players.

      I think they will be the bulk of the changes.

        Mamadou is but i don’t think Bakary is. But if they are the only changes then i do not think that is a weakened team. However, some of the others mentioned above should not be anywhere the starting 11.

          Yeah, I meant Mamadou, JFB.

          For me, it’s:

          Hennessey
          Ward Kelly Sakho PVA
          Zaha Jimmy Punch Andros
          Yohan
          Benteke

            How annoyed would you be if Jonathan Benteke started instead of Christian?

            Considering he’s still a month away from full fitness…

            Extremely.

            I thought he played for the reserves a few weeks ago? He is up there wit Remy for time on the treatment table.

            Think “think” he had a setback. It was a serious injury he had to be fair.
